Over the years, the Lottery has teamed up with the Beer Dabbler to support Minnesota’s growing brewery community. We’ve joined in the fun at the Winter Beer Dabbler and the Pride Dabbler, but this year is a little different. This year, the folks at the Dabbler came up with a new twist on a local brew tasting event.

They’ve created the ultimate, stay at home, pandemic version of a beer festival - Dabbler in a Box! Each Dabbler in a Box features 12 limited edition and seasonal brews from 12 local breweries and cideries.

Every Dabbler in a Box includes access to an exclusive video series produced by the Beer Dabbler that gives participants a mini-festival experience. There are interviews with brewery owners and staff, behind the scenes brewery tours, tasting notes on featured brews plus music from local artists like NUR-D and Pert Near Sandstone, trivia from Trivia Mafia, live art from D.Witt and a whole lot more.

Also included in every Dabbler in a Box, participants (who must be 21 or older) will find some fun surprises including tasting glasses and swag from participating breweries and sponsors. They might be lucky enough to find some Lottery tickets tucked inside their Dabbler in a Box.

We’re excited to throw our support behind the local brewery and art scene with this at-home tasting event. If you want to find out more, visit Dabbler in a Box to see what excitement is brewing in the next edition. Maybe you’ll decide to join in the fun and set up on own tasting event around a bonfire in your backyard or snuggled on your couch. We hope you enjoy!
